Awkwordly Emma

I've had this blog for...two years and almost five months.  In that time, it's undergone very few changes.  The name and URL have stayed the same.  I've had this background for quite awhile.  This year, I played with side panels and added multiple pages.  But now I'm ready for a big change.

I've been contemplating different names for awhile.  Bookworm/Future Author is cumbersome and kind of...I don't know, almost immature.  I wanted something that fit and was fairly unique.  And then earlier today, one came to me.  I tested it on Twitter and Facebook and got feedback from a few friends.  So while the URL will stay the same, the name of my blog is changing.  No longer will I be Bookworm/Future Author.  Later today, I'll put these changes into effect.  My blog will now be titled... *drumroll, please*


Awkwordly Emma


What I like about the name is that it states who I am: Emma, awkward, and someone who likes words (after all, I'm a bookworm and writer).  It's also a fun play-on-words that creates interest.

So not only is my blog going to have a new name, but I've made a header.  That's right: artistically-challenged Emma made a graphic.  I think it turned out pretty nicely, though.  I took a picture, uploaded it to Lunapic, played around with lighting, and added text.

Let me know what you think!  Hopefully these changes are positively-received and well-liked. :)
